Collaborating through Clan…

The concept of clan in Scottish High International School has been adopted from Scotland. The clan system was very different because it was built around relationships. This is the genesis of adopting a Clan System at Scottish High-to ensure child, teacher and parent involvement in the philosophy of the School. Scottish High International School, firmly believes that the students are like saplings ready to blossom into healthy plants. In order to grow up to be responsible citizens they need to be nurtured with love, care and affection. To achieve our goal the students from class 1 onwards are divided into four clans carefully keeping girl/boy ratio and as far as possible considering the division of talent.

The main aim of dividing the students into clans is to propagate team spirit and give a competitive edge, along with the overall development of the individual. Healthy competitions are conducted and opportunities are given to all to participate in intra clan and then in inter-clan competitions.
